SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D
At 8-7-3 the Hurricanes are behind their money line projected win total of 9.7 wins. They have 6 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 2 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game). They have come up especially short at home. Their 4-3-2 home record is -17% lower than their expected win percentage. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (4-4-2, 40%) is under their expected 56% win percentage. In simulations where the Hurricanes played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 40.7% of the time (#27 in the league). Their peak rank was #22 in the league back on 6/25.
Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average goal differential is -0.22 which ranks #20 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #19. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #18 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #21 in home games. They are trending down. Their average goal differential in their past 6 games is -0.83 (#24 over this stretch).

NEXT 5 GAME OUTLOOK: STORMY
The forecast for their next 5 games is not good. They have 4 games where they are expected to be competitive with at least a 47% chance of winning, and 6 games where they are a clear underdog.
The most likely scenario over the next 5 games is a record of 2-3 (36% chance). Their chances of winning 4 or more are 10.3%. Their chances of winning their next 5 are 1.4%. At #10 in the conference, they are fighting with the Capitals for positioning. With a -1.07 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 5 games they may find themselves further behind in the conference. They are in a battle with Flyers in the conference. In the short-term, we do predict much of a change in the gap between them and the Flyers. There is only a -0.4 advantage in projected wins over their next 5 games.
